DIY Solar Oven

Materials

Cardboard box
Aluminum foil
Plastic wrap or bag
Black construction paper
Tape
Glue stick
Pencil or wooden skewer
Scissors or utility knife

Instructions

1) Cut the “oven door” flap on the box. The size depends on what you are cooking and how much access you need. 

2) Decorate your solar oven. This is a fun *optional* step.

3) Glue  black paper to the bottom of the box. (The black color absorbs the heat inside of the box)

4) Glue aluminum foil to the inside of the door. (The foil reflects the sun into the oven)

5) Tape the plastic over the opening of the door. This will allow the air inside the box to heat up but keep the heat trapped inside the box.

 

This project works best on hot summer days.
